Fan-made ad teaches Microsoft how to advertise the Surface against the iPad

By , Nov 8, 2012

Instead of a boring teaser, the weird Movement commercial, a meaningless self-made drop test clip, cheesy making-of footage and a whole bunch of other all too easily forgettable videos, maybe Microsoft should have employed the talent of Forest Gibson? The guy clearly has a better idea of how to position Microsoft’s Surface tablet against the iPad juggernaut…

Apple’s iPad mini commercial served as a nice starting point for Gibson’s concept ad.

To be honest, I’m not really sure which one I like better.

You?

    I am Apple fanboy, but this is just awesome. Makes iPad look like shit.

    • Lordthree

      The dubstep nonsense makes iPad look like shit?

        side by side, IMO the microsoft fanmade one was better on a couple of levels.

      • AppleGenius

        So you mean playing Heart and Soul on a piano app makes the iPad look revolutionary? in 2012?

      • Lordthree

        Chopsticks is a lot more ‘classic’ than the dubstep (dumbstep) fad.

      • Lordthree

        Chopsticks is a classic. Warbley dubstep nonsense isn’t. Never will be. Surface is DOA
